Here are some videos that goes over various topics, including the importance of the tongue, complications of tongue ties, breathing, sleep, proper growth, and more!
This video goes over why breastfeeding difficulties may occur due to infant factors. Tongue tie and upper lip tie may lead to ineffective breastfeeding which can be easily and quickly corrected without sedation. Please note that for visual clarity, the nipple position is exaggerated (normally, the nipple does not extend past the hard palate).

Attractive Face or Not? It depends on Tongue Posture

Considering the airway is at the back of the face, having a receded chin or maxilla could hinder your airway, having big implications for sleep apnea. Clarification on the title: I of course don't mean to suggest that attractiveness depends *only* on tongue posture. Nutrition of the mother and nutrition of the person during formative years surely play a very large role in how the face develops. In fact, the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration would suggest that; fat soluble vitamins being very important for fertility and proper development of young, with grains & sugar ("modern foods") being very detrimental for development and oral health especially. Oral posture would be another piece of the puzzle. NOTE ON SUTURE FUSION: I wish I had used the phrasing "these sutures are not *completely* fused together," or "sutures are not *completely closed* ..." It's understood that after birth, the sutures of the skull "fuse" together by age 2 or so. One study found that complete closure of certain sutures does not occur until as late as 70 years old. Another found that “The human frontozygomatic suture undergoes synostosis during the eigth decade of life, but does not completely fuse by the age of 95 years" based on 61 human cadavers aged 20 to 95. This topic with a focus on facial development's affect on respiration and sleep apnea is discussed in Dr. Felix Liao's "Six Foot Tiger, Three Foot Cage" - https://amzn.to/2WMpPGk Another great book not mentioned in the video is "Jaws: The Story of a Hidden Epidemic" - https://amzn.to/2HVJoIR Weston Price's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" - https://amzn.to/2HZTB7f PDF of the transcript with links to sources: https://www.patreon.com/posts/24534404 ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned ▲IG: https://www.instagram.com/jeverett.whativelearned/ email@example.com
The Effects of Mouth Breathing on Facial Growth
Nasal breathing and correct oral posture apply physical forces on the bones which encourage them to grow forward and up, leading to a more attractive face. Mouth breathing on the other hand is the key environmental factor (aside from genetics) that causes a face to "melt" due to negative forces applied on growing facial bones. This has disastrous consequences on a growing child's bones and is one of the most insidious factors in unattractive faces. Music: CO.AG Music - Dark Rage

The series Stranger Things has somewhat brought the term "mouth breather" back into circulation, but there needs to be more education on the importance of avoiding breathing through the mouth at all times - even when asleep. Patrick McKeown's book "The Oxygen Advantage" ( http://amzn.to/2p66IIz ) is a must-read book for anyone who breathes. Everyone else, you're off the hook. - - - - - - - - MOUTH TAPING & Stuffed Noses Some points about the mouth taping to be careful. For the most part taping the mouth isn't dangerous unless you have a nasal obstruction. If you can't breathe with the tape on then you wouldn't fall asleep in the first place. However it is possible that in the middle of the night you could roll into some position that makes it hard to breathe through the nose, which should just cause you to roll over again or you'd just wake up. However, just in case: ■Make the tape easy to take off: You can pat the piece of tape on the back of your hand to remove some of the adhesive before putting it on. Fold it at both ends to make a tab you can pull on to take it off ■Don't tape your mouth after drinking alcohol (or drugs) and it's better not to wear it if you've eaten dinner soon before bed. Patrick McKeown recommends to finish dinner at least 2 hours before sleeping ■If it makes you anxious, try just wearing the tape while awake until you're comfortable with it. If you really don't like the idea of taping your mouth, you can get an anti-snoring chin strap instead which will keep your mouth closed. [Stuffed Nose] Patrick McKeown addresses this in the book, here's one of the nose unblocking techniques: -Sit in a chair -After a gentle exhalation, close your mouth and pinch your nostrils -Gently nod your head back and forth until you feel the urge to breathe. -Keep your mouth closed but attempt to gently inhale through the nose -Unless you simply cannot breathe through the nose at this point, continue to breathe lightly in and out through your nose. -If the nose is still stuffed, repeat the exercise. (Repeat up to 4 times in one sitting though)
